Eve Claudia Moeykens-Arballo (b. San Francisco, California) is an aspiring archivist and urban planner. To quote James, she has “an immense curiosity about life, and [is] constantly staring and wondering.” Approaching subjects with an intertextual lens, she blends an interest in literature, art, film, and language with current events. Her research interests include exploring the methods of New Urbanism and their potential impact on homelessness in urban and rural areas, the role of public spaces in an increasingly privatized world, altermondialism and its roots in North Africa, the growing trend of narcissism in art, and the question “Why have there been no great female artists?” Her former art practice was focused on the production of experimental, materialist film inspired by the works of Stan Brakhage and Maya Deren.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and French with a Plan of Concentration on the nature of grace in the works of Christian mystic Simone Weil and filmmaker Robert Bresson from Marlboro College in Marlboro, Vermont. She is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Curatorial Practices and the Public Sphere from the University of Southern California.
